MySQL couldn't find log file on Snow leopard

If you have removed the Binary logs from the file system that exits in the mysql data folder and during the start up an error will occur These is after tailing the error log of mysql. /usr/sbin/mysqld: File './mysql_bin.000025' not found (Errcode: 2) [ERROR] Failed to open log (file './9531_mysql_bin.000025', errno 2) [ERROR] Could not open log file [ERROR] Can't init tc log [ERROR] Aborting InnoDB: Starting shutdown... InnoDB: Shutdown completed; log sequence number 0 2423986213 [Note] /usr/sbin/mysqld: Shutdown complete Basically, MySQL is looking in the mysql-bin.index file and it cannot find the log files that are listed within the index. This will keep MySQL from starting, but the fix is quick and easy. You have two options: Edit the index file You can edit the mysql-bin.index file in a text editor of your choice and remove the references to any logs which don't exist on the filesystem any longer. Once you're done, save the index file and start

Difference between "and" : "&&" in Ruby

and v/s && Many people seem to prefer using and instead of && in Ruby, as it sounds more like speech. However, do note that it’s slightly different from using &&. The difference is important enough that I think you should avoid using and. && (double ampersand) vs and The difference is that && has higher precedence. This means that it will get evaluated before and. So, we end up with weird stuff in some situations. This is perhaps most likely to cause weirdness when using the ternary operator, as it is evaluated before and. Here’s a real life example: >> a = true >> b = false # 1 >> a and b ? 'hello' : '**silence**' => "**silence**" # 2 >> a && b ? 'hello' : '**silence**' => "**silence**" # 3 >> b and a ? 'hello' : '**silence**' => false # oops # 4 >> b && a ? 'hello' : '**silence**' =>

How to change the TimeStamp using RUBY

For Changing the TimeStamp we are going to use touch FileUtils.touch 'sample.txt', :mtime => - 2.hours If you omit the :mtime the modification timestamp will be set to the current time: FileUtils.touch 'sample.txt' You may also pass an array of filenames: FileUtils.touch %w[ foo bar baz ], :mtime => - 2.hours Non-existent files will be created.
